Suzanne Brockmann returns to the action-packed world of her bestselling Troubleshooters series with a new novella featuring U.S. Navy SEAL Izzy Zanella, his extended family, and his kickass teammates in SEAL Team Sixteen.

The only easy day is yesterday.

BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training is known for being the toughest, meanest, most physically punishing program in the entire U.S. Navy, and a new crop of tadpoles have arrived in Coronado eager to prove their worth--to make it through Hell Week, and become U.S. Navy SEALs.

Although Izzy prefers assignments out in the "real world," he's glad to be an instructor for the current BUD/S class, because it allows him to spend time at home with his wife, Eden, and her lively and lovable extended family.

Eden's sixteen-year-old brother, Ben, is dealing with a new crush and a homophobic bully in his high school, but it soon appears that things are not as they seem.

Meanwhile, Eden's other brother (and Izzy's SEAL teammate and former frenemy) Danny Gillman and his wife Jenn have just had a baby who has colic and cries constantly.

As Ben deals with the type of too-serious high school drama that could involve a body count, and Danny and Jenn juggle a new baby, lack of sleep, and postpartum blues, Izzy is intrigued by "Boat Squad John," a misfit team of young SEAL candidates all named John, including the intriguing young Seagull, his swim buddy Timebomb, and Seagull's nemesis Hans.

Does Seagull have what it takes keep Boat Squad John still standing when the dust of BUD/S Hell Week settles or will they ring out?

Set in Coronado during BUD/S training Hell Week, in Ready to Roll Brockmann introduces the SEAL officer and instructor nicknamed Grunge--Lt. Peter Greene--as she delivers what she does best: a story celebrating the U.S. Navy SEALs--and the women (and sometimes men) who wholeheartedly love and support them. (About 56,000 words or 225 pages)

Note: Ready to Roll is the third installment in a trio of stories featuring Izzy Zanella that starts in Free Fall and continues in Home Fire Inferno (Burn Baby Burn).

I love this universe created by my fave author. The only problem is that every story ends too soon. These people feel authentic to me, and I miss them when they leave my temporary reality. Please write longer stories, more frequently

Unfortunately, I stopped reading on page 22. Suzanne decided to include a gay character in this book. I have no interest in reading about 2 men & the relationship trouble they face.

Wonderful energy, totally rocking points of view changes, allowing the reader into the "minds" of all of the characters !!! I will always put my money on any Suzanne Brockmann project because she takes me, her reader, on the wild and exciting ride into each adventure!

This is not my favorite TS book, I was hoping Izzy would be more of a main character but after reading about the new book SKH I am glad that I read it. If you are a true TS fan I recommend reading it. I am looking forward to reading more about BSJ.

I have enjoyed your troubleshooter series and introduce two of my friends to the books and they're hook. We have purchased ebooks. I purchased the audio books because the stories are that good. We Can't Get Enough. Can't wait for the next book. I appreciate the amount of detail and research you put into your books and make them like someone you might know is friend.

I love this series! This novella is told from every character's point of view which may sound confusing but isn't. From Boat Squad John, to parents with a collicky newborn, to teenagers dealing with domestic violence and sexual orientation, Suzanne gives voice to every character with compassion and humor. I can't wait for "Grunge's" story!

Ms. Brockmann never disappoints. She is the best at keeping multiple story lines going in such a way that you can't wait to get to the end so you know what happens with everyone. I especially love the introductions to new characters. Sending some love for future stories with Grunge and BSJ!

I love the people Suzanne Brockmann populates her world with. I'm excited to meet the SEALS from Boat Squad John and get to know them better!

Classic Suzanne Brockmann. Very fun read, although I wish there was more Izzy and Eden. The novella is told from multiple perspectives over the course of a week, and is set in 2010. BN doesn't list the page count, but it came in at 174 on my Nook. There are multiple storylines (Eden's brother Ben gets involved with a bully/domestic violence situation, Jenn/Danny are dealing with new parenthood, and Izzy is doing training at Hell Week), but it's a nice set up for future books.
